VC Speed Dating
Where high-potential companies pitch investors and make deals.
TechPoint connected 39 venture capital and investment firms from 19 different states with our “Best of Tech” Mira Award winners and other select startups and scale-ups last year. This year, dozens of VCs and investable Indiana companies ranging from pre-revenue through Series A and above, will meet virtually during our newly designed, socially distant VC Speed Dating event.
Tech companies need funding to hire talent, build product, and go to market fast.
We make that easier by building relationships with out-of-state venture capital firms and angel investors to showcase dozens of companies who they could invest in.

“In some cases, investors we bring in for this event are visiting Indiana for the first time, and we’re making that first impression on them with the intent to turn their initial visit into a year-round relationship of meeting with and investing in Indiana companies.”- Mike Langellier, President & CEO of TechPoint
In 2018, tech companies raised $135M through 26 deals—more than half the total amount raised by all companies in Indiana.
We bring together emerging tech companies who are in growth mode and raising money to meet with investors under one roof in one day. Our investor partners are selected by recommendations from the CEOs and top executives of our companies and come from all across the U.S.
VC Speed Dating is an incredibly efficient way for both companies and VC’s to meet 5-10 companies in one day. Most of the companies are early stage/growth looking for Series A funding. Companies and investors rank each other’s preferred meetings. Matches are set based on rankings and private pitch sessions. Pitches are 18 minute sessions where companies can explain their product and growth strategy to make deals for their next funding round.
